Sattu Ki Kachori A Tasty Delicacy from Bihar

If you are looking for an authentic delicacy for breakfast or dinner then sattu ki kachori also known as makuni in bihar would be a wonderfull treat and would not dissapoint you even as a evening snack. They compliment well with pickle or potato curry.

I made these very recently after I got the recipe from my SIL who is from north india.She is one of the best cooks I have known who shares a lot of lovely north indian delicacies.So just try this out and make your family have a wonderfull evening snack.

  • 1 cup wheat flour/ atta
  • pinch of ajwain / carrom seeds
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • oil to deep fry
  • water as required
For Stuffing
  • 4 tbsp sattu ka atta/roasted gram flour
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onions
  • 1 tsp finely chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp finely chopped green chillies
  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro/coriander leaves
  • 1 tsp pickle oil or mustard oil
  • salt to taste
Mix the flour with oil,ajwain and salt nicely, then add required amount of water to form a nice dough. Not too soft like chappati or not firm as poori.Let it sit for 1/2 hr.

Make the stuffing by mixing all the ingredients mentioned above.It will be somewhat dry , add approximately 1 tbsp water to this mixture to make it little lumpy in our fist.

After 1/2 hr knead the dough again for 1-2 min, divide into small lemon size balls,and flatten it by pressing. Place 1/2 table spoon of stuffing on it and enclose it.Seal the edges completely so that stuffing does not come out. Flatten again, sprinkle a little flour and roll them with a rolling pin to approximately 2.5 inch diameter

Heat oil for deep fry to medium temperature. Drop kachodi one by one and deep fry till both side golden brown. Drain the excess the oil and put them in a plate with tissue paper. Serve immediately..
